Idle Hour Park employee Mark Hanlon works on fixing a cornhole board for some park visitors. Providing these services for the community, as well as keeping the fields and the rest of the park in working order, are a daily responsibility for Hanlon and other park employees.
Behind the scenes at Idle Hour Park

Everyone in Springfield knows the name Idle Hour Park. Little League is played there, Washington County High School plays many of their sports there, and community members enjoy walks around the track or days on the playground with their kids there.

People who visit the park see well-kept fields and an overall clean environment. But keeping it that way isn’t a small task, something park director Bernard Smalley knows all too well.

“We do what we can out here, I think we do a good job with what we have,” he said.
